In a perfect world, the owner of the property would either properly maintain his property or the local unit of government would do so and charge him a cleaning fee or a fine.
Tending to a neglected property is a benefit to community, as a crime preventive measure. Bad guys routinely cruise the city's neighborhoods looking for homes to invade, burglarize, and scrap down to the frame.
If a property gets vandalized such that windows and doors are stolen, the home becomes not only an eye-sore for the community but many crimes could ultimately be committed on its premises: drug dealing, drug use, prostitution, dumping, and dead body disposal.
The solution is to remove the bait: uncut lawns and uncut bushes. Moreover, another benefit is that the home could be sold faster is it is being properly maintained and a solid family of tax paying citizens would be added to the community.
